Lab 7 Skydivers and Families of Curves
Due Tuesday, November 5
During the fall from an airplane, the forces acting on a skydiver are the earths gravitational pull
(i.e., the weight of the skydiver) and the air
MA 141 Lab 6 Newtons Method
Due Tuesday, October 22
We have had lots of practice finding derivatives and writing equations of tangent lines.
Now we are going to see how we can use tangent lines to search for the zeros of a
function, using an algorithm cal

Lab 5 Exploring the Derivatives of Exponential Functions
Your report for this lab exercise is due on Thursday, 10/10.
In this laboratory exercise, we consider functions of the form where a is any positive real
MATH 141 Lab 4 Second Derivatives
We saw that the sign of the (first) derivative gives us information about where our function is
increasing and decreasing, so we might expect that the second derivative also gives us
information about the original functio
MA 141 Lab 04 Slopes and Derivatives
This week we will use MATLAB to explore slopes and derivatives. One way to do this is to
calculate the slope between two points on the function, say between a and a + h. To find the
slope of the function exactly at the
